The weather in Seattle recently has been quite moody so the vibe of Nourish's photos for Thanksgiving will follow suit!
So let's chat about these raviolis. *Stomach growls.*
These little pumpkin goodies are so friggin' delicious -- our photographer took some home and her hubby - who I guess didn't like pumpkin stuff - devoured them.
I made these for a little dinner party we threw and they were the hit of the dinner. Such a hit that I ended up making them for Patryk and I later in the week. And then a little later. Okay, and then just for myself one day at lunch.
They're that easy and quick to make. Seriously, my lunch batch only took me like 8 minutes!
This makes them the perfect dish for Thanksgiving, as they don't take time away from cooking other things. Or, you can bring them to a Thanksgiving dinner you're attending and they might even steal the attention away fro the turkey. Jus sayin'.
BONUS - they're pumpkin. This is great for two reasons: 1) pumpkin is healthier and has less calories than cheese, so even though these are ravioli, they're really not that unhealthy for you. 2) pumpkin is delicious.
1 cup of canned pumpkin
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Fresh basil or sage, chopped (around 10 leaves)
24 wonton wrappers
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Mix pumpkin, Parmesan, around 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and a dash of black pepper in a bowl.
2. Spoon about a 1/2 tablespoon pumpkin mixture into the center of each wonton wrapper (see photos for reference).
3. Moisten edges of dough with water (I used a brush, made it super fast and easy!) and pinch opposite sides together to form a triangle. DOn't forget to seal the edges tightly!
4. Place ravioli into a large saucepan of boiling water and cook around 6-7 minutes, drain carefully. (They're delicate!)
5. Sauce: Pour 1/2 cup of broth and 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter in a large pan and bring to a boil. Add ravioli, tossing to coat.
6. Sprinkle with basil or sage, and maybe some more Parmesan!
